Lebanon Citizens National Bank Administration Building and Plaza
Lebanon Citizens National Bank’s recent rapid growth led to the need for more office space for its corporate headquarters. Working closely with the architect, LCNB, the developer, as well as The City and citizens of Lebanon, The Kleingers Group provided civil engineering and landscape architectural services to create a new corporate campus all stakeholders will enjoy.
The design transforms an abandoned and highly visible corner in downtown Lebanon into a semi-private park-like campus. Pedestrian paths meander throughout the urban landscape to create a variety of spaces for intimate relaxation or larger civic gatherings. Multiple tiered “plazas” provide a gentle transition from the busy intersection to the employee amenity area and entrance. Sloped undulating planting beds break up the pavement while also providing a vegetative buffer, which enhances the intimacy of the space. A variety of seating enhances the charm of the space. Ultimately, the character of the design provides a flexible urban campus for the bank while simultaneously enhancing Lebanon’s historic atmosphere.
